“Riad of Roses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This is definitely the Riad of Roses! Your welcome is assured from the moment you walk into this richly decorated Moroccan hotel. The greeting is warm and genuine, you are invited to sit around a rose petal filled fountain and offered traditional pastries and sweet mint tea. Your bedroom is strewn with rose petals, one single gorgeous bloom decorates the washbasin in the bathing area, the perfume throughout the riad is divine.
Breakfast is served on the roof terrace where the breeze softens the air, every moring the fare is different, thick fruity yoghurt, freshly squeezed orange juice, a variety of pastries, crepes, toasted bread, preserves, cheese and large pots of tea and coffee.
Dinner is available too, pre-ordered, delicious tagines, couscous, Moroccan salads.
Not particularly child-friendly, the riad is situated in a typical medina walking street (no vehicle access) and does not have an elevator so if you find stairs a challenge this may not be the place for you.
We were in the Wardle room on the ground floor. The en suite bathroom facilites were located at one end of the room behind a three quarter wall that did not reach the ceiling. Although the shower/handbasin/toilet were divided by walls there were no doors, a curtain could be drawn to provide some visual privacy, but no real privacy if you wanted a good fart!

Room Tip: When you are making a reservation ask if the en suite is seperated from the bedroom by a door.

my daughter and I stayed at Riad Jona for 6 nights, it was the 2nd best part of our trip (the 1st was our hammam) from the 1st instance we walked in, the welcome of both Julien and this staff we knew this was going to be great, every morning we would have our breakfast when and where we requested and it was always wonderful, our room was so beautiful and peaceful, we arrived when it started getting very hot, so in the mid afternoon we would seclude ourselves in the AC of our room while getting ready for our evening adventures. the Riad is about a 5 minute walk from Jemaa and even thou we were two women and my daughter a beautiful 27 year old walking back to the riad late, we felt safe, it is so well situated just off a main road leading to the plaza. the upstair terrace was a santuary were one can go to read or just relax after a day of sight seeing. being in the travel business for over 25 years, i must say that this is one of the best adventures we have been on, and staying at this lovely riad was our highlight.

Room Tip: we stayed in musc on the ground level we loved our room it was great for the two of us

We stayed 4 nights at Riad Jona. We were warmly welcomed and both the Owner Julien and all staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Our room was beautiful and roomy with a lovely bunch of flowers. Breakfast on the top terrasse was delicious and the pool was most welcome after a long day walking. We had dinner twice in the riad and there again the food prepared was delicious. A great address.

We immediately felt like home at this lovely riad. It is beautifully decorated, and the rooftop terrasse is simply amazing. We enjoyed our breakfast up there every single day while gazing at the Atlas mountains. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful with fresh orange juice, although very bready, which seems to be the norm in Marocco. It is situated 10 mins from the square, providing a calm and relaxed escape from the chaotic life in the souks. We stayed in the Musc room at the gound floor. Although facing the common area, we felt we had our privacy, so I would recommend it if you are on a budget. However next time I will choose one of the (more expensive) rooms at the first floor. All in all I highly recommend this lovely riad.

We stayed for one night and it was a great riad. Great location only 10 minutes from the jemaa el fna. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the tea and cakes on arrival were lovely. We would not have found it without help as it is a little but off a main road but once you ahve been once it is easy to find again. There were nto many guests when we stayed but I would be concerned if there were lots of guests who were making noise in the evenings as the rooms open straight onto the central square. However, this may nto be a problem. I would stay here again.

We stayed in Riad Jona for 3 nights. The staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive to our every need. The room which was beautiful, filled with roses and rose petals, surrounded an enchanting courtyard. We ate in the Riad everynight just for ease after a long day out with our 2 and 4 year old. The food was fabulous - would definitely recommend their chicken pastilla and lamb tagine. Can't recommend Riad Jona highly enough - can't wait to return for a romantic few nights with husband only!

Great for independent travellers who want some comforts. We stayed 4 nights total at Riad Jona and enjoyed the ambiance very much. The wi-fi worked well. We had two, separate airport pick-ups in our party which went smoothly! The staff that we interacted with spoke a goodly amount of English, and speaking some French was a plus for us. We stayed 3 nights, then returned to the riad after an overnight side-trip to the Atlas Mountains, tired and sandy. No problem with the non-contiguous booking (made online). Plus, Julien welcomed us back and upgraded our basic room to suite! Merci beaucoup!
